Korting Hannover AG (previously Korting Brothers AG) is a long-standing industrial engineering company in Hanover.

At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, the company played a leading role in the development of injector pumps in Germany and Europe.

Korting still produces pump and pump-based vacuum technology, but also industrial burners and machinery related to thermal and chemical purification/transformation processes

The Korting Brothers company was founded in Hanover on November 1, 1871 by the brothers Berthold and Ernst Korting. The brothers rented a small office a small space in the backyard of the present day 13 Joachimstrasse near Hanover Central Station. Berthold took charge of the commercial side, while Ernst specialized in the technical side. The brothers started successfully with the development and patenting of one of the first functioning injectors. In the beginning, only two workmen were employed.
